HOUSTON -- Kevin McHale preaches consistency. So far his young Rockets team hasnt heeded his words and is coming off two straight losses to the Grizzlies. McHale knows Houston, despite a 29-17 record, must play better. Coming up on Tuesday night are the Southwest Division-leading San Antonio Spurs. When asked how his team can be more consistent, McHale shared several ideas. "Weve got to be better against a lot of different styles of basketball," he said. "Weve got to know what our strengths and weaknesses are and play to our strengths. Weve got to be way more tied together and diligent about all the little things. We worry too much about all the big things. But weve got to do all the little things and that leads to big things." The Rockets have won both previous meetings with the Spurs this season. McHale doesnt expect that success to factor into Tuesdays game, especially with San Antonio coming off a tough loss to the Heat. "Its going to be a tough game," McHale said. "The first two games dont make any difference. Were a different team. Theyre a different team. Weve got to play really well. That team lost to Miami, theyre going to come in hungry." Dwight Howard is still upset about how Houston played against Memphis, but believes rough spots like this will help the Rockets in the long run. "These are growing pains," Howard said. "Losing those games and trying to learn from experience on how to play is good for our team. We hate to lose and we were all (ticked) off about the last two games, but it was some things that we learned and picked up from playing against a team like Memphis and well get better." The 28-year-old Howard knows that a team as young as the Rockets is going to have many ups and downs throughout the season. But he thinks the lessons they learn now will be the difference when they get to the playoffs. "We cant look at anything in a negative way," he said. "We have to stay positive and understand that everything comes with time. Weve still got to play hard and go out there and be aggressive but also understand that were a great team in progress. It doesnt happen overnight." James Harden, who leads the team in scoring with almost 24 points a game, has struggled offensively in the last two games, averaging just 13. He hasnt had any of those struggles against San Antonio since joining the Rockets before last season and has averaged 30 points a game against the Spurs. He isnt sure why hes played so well against the Spurs. "Im just happy to go out there and do my job," Harden said. "Whether its the Spurs or the Memphis Grizzlies or the Thunder or the Lakers or whoever, every game is important to me and I just try to go out there and do my best." Harden believes the Rockets have had trouble with consistency because of various injuries that have forced them to change their starting lineup almost every night. "Whatever guys are out there were trying to get it going," he said. "Its kind of hard to get a rhythm and kind of get a feel for where guys like to be at because every other game its a different lineup. So we just work with it." Along with Harden getting back on track, the Rockets are also focused on being aggressive inside and looking to score there first. The Rockets lead the NBA in points in the paint, but were outscored 104-62 in that area in the last two games. "We just shot long shot after long shot and never got the ball in the paint," McHale said. "When were getting in the paint, good things happen."

He packed the Tigers away almost as easily. Bauer outpitched former Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander and tamed Detroits menacing lineup, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 6-2 win on Tuesday night. Bauer (1-1), recalled earlier in the day for his second start this season, held the ALs top hitting team to two runs and seven hits in six-plus innings. "He was aggressive, attacking the strike zone," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He changed speeds and used all his pitches. Thats not the easiest assignment, coming up from Triple-A to face them. He really did a great job." Mike Aviles hit a two-run double in the second when the Indians scored four runs off Verlander (5-3), who didnt settle in until the damage was already done. David Murphy homered in the seventh for the last-place Indians, who can sweep the three-game series with the Central-leading Tigers on Wednesday. Torii Hunter and Alex Avila homered for Detroit, which has lost two straight road games after winning 11 in a row. The Indians were anxious to see how the head-strong 23-year-old Bauer, with the unorthodox warm-up routine and blazing fastball, would perform against a lineup featuring Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Hunter. Bauer has been dominating minor league hitters at Columbus, and had never faced any hitters of this calibre. He was more than up for the challenge. "It was nice to come out and do that," Bauer said. Obviously, it helped he was staked to an early four-run lead and Detroit leadoff hitter Ian Kinsler ran his club out of a potentially big inning in the fifth when he challenged left fielder Michael Brantley, who threw him out at second. Bauer held Hunter, Cabrera and Martinez to a combined 2 for 8, and he was helped by two double plays -- one he finished by covering first base on a close play to end the sixth. Trailing 5-2, the Tigers had runners at first and second with one out when Nick Castellanos hit grounder to first. The Indians got the force at second and Bauer hustled to first to get the return throw. Castellanos was ruled safe, but Francoona challenged the call, and after the umpires reviewed the video, it was overturned.dddddddddddd When Bauer was lifted for Bryan Shaw after giving up a leadoff single in the seventh, he received a standing ovation from the Progressive Field crowd. In his first season with Cleveland, Bauer made four starts but spent most of the year in the minors. The Indians werent always pleased with his attitude, but hes maturing just as they hoped. "Performing well is always pleasing, especially when the team gets the win and you can contribute to it," Bauer said. "That was the most frustrating thing for me last year, I would go out there and I didnt feel like I was contributing to a team win. Its nice to be able to do that this year." The Tigers were impressed with Bauer. "I saw him once or twice last year at Triple-A, so I knew hes got good stuff," Castellanos said. "What made him so tough tonight was he never made the same mistake twice. He kept us off-balance." Shaw pitched two perfect innings and Cody Allen worked a 1-2-3 ninth. The Indians grabbed a 5-1 lead in the second, when they collected three doubles, two singles and Michael Bourn caught Detroit napping and stole third. The unexpected outburst began with a base-running blunder as Carlos Santana singled off Cabreras glove at first but was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. Nick Swisher doubled and Yan Gomes walked before Aviles lined his two-run double into the gap in left-centre. Bourn followed with a double off the wall in right to score Aviles and Clevelands leadoff hitter alertly swiped third without a throw. Asdrubal Cabreras RBI single made it 4-1 and brought Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones out to visit Verlander, who dropped to 9-11 with a 5.36 ERA in his career at Cleveland. NOTES: Indians 2B Jason Kipnis will begin a rehab assignment Friday at Triple-A Columbus. Kipnis has been on the disabled list since May 2 with an oblique injury and the club would like to get him in a few games before hes activated. If all goes well, Kipnis will be back for Mondays series opener in Chicago. ... Brantley has hit safely in 17 consecutive home games, one shy of the ballpark record shared by Kenny Lofton (1996) and Roberto Alomar (2000).
